Malachite was mined in the deserts of ancient Egypt as early as 3000BC where is was crushed up and used for eye shadow and mixed with plant resin for wall paint. Its vivid green colour is due to the high copper content which also makes Malachite somewhat toxic. Malachite is soft and strong and supports emotional growth as well as acting as a protection stone for your heart - Protection
Pyrite is a mineral that forms within veins of Iron and can be found in wide expanses all around the world, and in Australia along side our valued Iron Ore deposits. Also know as Fools Gold it has the same specific gravity (or weight per gram) as gold. It is a strong and heavy stone but also brittle, and has a beautiful silver/gold metallic lustre that promotes positive thinking, enhances confidence and aids assertiveness - Positivity and Confidence
